Make Your Meal Even Healthier Tip:

Throw some good stuff into the blender while you make this dip. Maybe some protein powder or hemp hearts!

Serves 4-8 


- 2-4 cloves of garlic (depending on how you like it!)
- 1 can of organic black beans
- 1 tbsp of tahini
- juice of half a lime
- 1/2 teaspoon of cumin
- 1/4 teaspoon of ground coriander
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt (start with less, taste, add as needed)
- soy yogurt, sour cream or tahini for decorating
- dip-ables! - rice crackers and veggies of your choosing


Blend half of the beans in a food processor or blender. Add the garlic and continue to blend, then the rest of the beans and the spices & lime juice.

You may need to add some water to get the consistency right, just be careful/go slow.

When fully blended, transfer to serving dish and smooth down the top.

Using a piping bag (or a baggie with the corner cut), draw the spiderweb pattern on top of the dip with your chosen white topping.

Serve with rice crackers, and/or vegetables. And if you have a plastic spider on hand, put one in there too!
